To determine the relation between basic clinical characteristics and resource utilisation in paediatric intensive care, an open prospective study was performed.
Resource utilisation was expressed using the therapeutic intervention score system (TISS) and length of stay (LOS), from which total resource utilisation per admission (TISSTOT) and average daily resource utilisation (TISSMEAN=TISS-TOT/LOS) were obtained.
Overall 593 admissions, totalling 3130 days, were included.
Mortality was 8.4% and non-survivors accounted for 14.1% of overall resource utilisation.
In non-survivors, TISSTOT and TISSMEAN were higher, whereas LOS was not different from survivors.
